i recently finished up another test knit for an incredibly lovely and talented knitwear designer, park williams of parknknit! park has designed some truly knockout sweaters, my personal favorite being (and currently in my selfish knitting queue) the aquamarline. so when she put out a testing call for her new scrappy scarf design, Cable scraps, i jumped on board knowing it would be the perfect project to warm me up for aquamarline.
i tend to wear plain basic colors, so i originally envisioned making this scarf using various grays as a base and mixing in other neutral shades. once i got going however, i was reaching for every colorful scrap in my stash to mix in.
i ended up being about 1/2” off gauge, most likely because of my yarn combos, but since i love big, oversized scarves i decided to go for it. this pattern is very simple and easy to follow, but park encourages you to use up a bunch of scraps and change colors as often as you like which makes it so incredibly addicting and fun to knit. seriously, i had a hard time putting this project down.
i absolutely love the end result. my scarf is so big and soft and warm! i particularly like the cable design running down the middle, and i think it helps blend in the color changes and make them look more fluid.
